I'm testing right now, and writing comments as I do it. I guess you
already noted some of them, but here it goes:
- When you first creat an account, the subject of e-mail is something
like "activate your pentabarf account", would better be "activate your
wikimania 2008 paper submission account" or similar
- Once user activates the account, there could be a direct link for logging in
- The Wikimania logo only appears after logging in
- There could be notes on abstract, description and resources fields,
with instructions like the size of text expected.
- The image submitted is automatically resized, there could be a note
saying the expected dimensions of the image.
That's all I see for now, it looks great!
I volunteer for giving technical help on pentabarf if you need. I have
no experience with it, but I know php very well and can invest some
time in hacking it.

wish as a concrete idea for an event at Wikimania 2008 via
feedback whether this kind of giving input is suitable? I strongly bet
that discussing single ideas like I-want-a-session-on-X or
how-about-a-workshop-on-Y is not the way it will work.
